Virtual Gulf Coast Campus Safety Summit 2022

A virtual conference on preventing and responding to gender-based violence on college campuses.

About This Gulf Coast Summit

The Virtual Gulf Coast Campus Safety Summit is a regional and affordable conference for college and university administrators, faculty, staff, and students interested in improving their campus efforts to prevent and respond to sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. The Gulf Coast Campus Safety Summit will be held online through a series of live and on-demand webinars from April 6-15, 2022.

The Summit is designed for key college personnel from the states of Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida. Those invited include: Title IX coordinators, college/university legal representatives, campus and public safety officers, residential life and student affairs personnel, athletic directors, women’s center staff, student leaders, health and counseling professionals, and other campus and community representatives interested in campus safety.

Thanks to corporate and foundation sponsors and partnerships, we are able to keep the Gulf Coast Campus Safety Summit registration fees extremely affordable. Our rationale is to encourage campuses to have multi-disciplinary teams to attend, increasing the impact of the Summit on every campus represented. We are committed to hosting a wide range of regional campus safety representatives at every Summit while maintaining the highest quality conference of its kind.

The Gulf Coast Campus Safety Summit is the result of a collaborative relationship between Jana’s Campaign, Inc., Rice University, Harris County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, and AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse). Utilizing their expertise and knowledge of the field these partners provide conference coordination and facilitation for the Summit. Other colleges, universities, and gender-based advocacy groups are participating as supporters and collaborators for this project.
